In the Works - Old Dominion University

Morel Fry, Administrative Services Librarian at Old Dominion U. in Norfolk, VA, passed along some information about ODU's Learning Commons project, which is being documented and tracked via the Learning Commons Wiki.

"Old Dominion University Library in collaboration with our Office of Computing and Communications Services and University College is also in the process of building a Learning Commons. Construction will start in May and add 8000 square feet to the library as part of a 20,000 sq. ft. renovation of the first floor into a learning commons with enhanced technology, University college services and library services. The commons will be open 24/5, will have 5 collaboration rooms, presentation room, multi-media room (with sound booth), and have a café. There will also be a 30,000 sq. ft. addition to the library that will house University College staff. At ODU, University college services include freshman and transfer orientation and parent programs, placement testing, academic advising, mentoring and tutoring, learning communities, career management, experiential learning evaluation, developmental course offerings, academic continuance, and student success programs."
